Itís a wet nitrous outlet x series( beginners kit Iím told). The only mod on the car engine wise is an off-road x pipe. Other than that completely stock. 84,xxx kms. Not sure how many miles that is. The car is meticulously maintained. Lots of preventative maintenance and anything that needs to be done is done immediately. Itís so taken care of that itís only seen rain twice since I owned it, and then only because I was caught in it. Thanks a lot for the reply and any other questions you have about the vehicle just ask.
I have to say that there is so much contradicting info on the web that itís really hard sifting through it all. ďDonít run anything without a tuneĒ, ďI run 125 shot without a tune and only use colder plugsĒ. I think maybe this is the reason so many people have trouble with nitrous. They believe everything they read.
I plan on installing my kit, running the car without being armed, watching my wideband gauge. Then another run with the 50hp jet and watching my wideband even before going for a dyno tune. That way Iím educated on whatís happening in the engine myself before paying to have it tuned for the 100 hp jet.
I assume you have a tune for your off road x-pipe otherwise your CEL is on. Just to preface this all is I have little to no NOS experience personally. Always thought about, but because of all the negatives never tried it... Now a friend of mine ran a I believe 100-150 shot I believe wet on his 99-04 4.6 GT. I believe he had it tuned for it as well. I am not sure how the car will respond if not tuned for it. I would imagine at the least without a tune you won't get full benefit. I mean adding even as small as 50hp to an un-expecting engine has to be tough. I mean think about it this way, a car that calls for 87 octane gas doesn't really get any benefit from using 93 octane gas without a tune... Doesn't do damage, but no benefit and it doesn't help it.
I think the best advice I can give you is to talk to a local performance shop as they will be able to give you all the knowledgeable info you would need. Are you planing to instal yourself? Wet kits are much harder to do than dry kits. I know you said starter kit, but usually dry is a quick, easy, and fast starter kit. At least that what I found and was told when I entertained this idea years back on a my second 2006 GT once I got a manual trans
I was thinking about doing it on. Now I will also tell you they told me wet is much safer than dry so good that you have wet, but wet is a more difficult and hands on install. I was much newer into cars back when I considered this so I was working with a shop who was going to do install and set it all up. This was a long time ago, but I think they were doing a dyno tune to support it.
In short I would call up or stop by a local performance shop and run your plans by them to get the best advice. Even if you plan to do work yourself if you find a good and friendly shop they love cars and will be happy to talk with you. I would find one who can do tunes so you already built the relationship and when ready to tune and do other mods they can be your go to.
